“There is hope, even when your brain tells you there isn't.” ― John Green
Depression, anxiety and chronic stress are long-term struggles but it is possible to feel better, and the body is a great vehicle for that. As someone who has struggled with mental health for decades, I know that it can be absolutely debilitating, and make it extremely difficult to find a sense of mental focus, relaxation and calmness.
I found yoga after years of pain built up and became unbearable. A series of difficult events led to my struggle with depression, chronic pain, body dysmorphic disorder, and debilitating anxiety. Between the trauma I'd experienced as a kid and the bullying I endured throughout most of my childhood, I'd developed a drug addiction by the time I was 16 years old. In my early 20's, my mom was diagnosed with a fatal brain disease called Huntington's Disease and not too long after I was injured in a bad car accident. As the list of factors adding to my pain grew, so did my depression, and to be completely transparent - at several points I was having thoughts about suicide.
Over the course of a decade I was able to heal my body from chronic pain and significantly reduce depression and anxiety using a combination of yoga, exercise, meditation and several other therapeutic interventions. But my life changed dramatically when I began to incorporate a consistent daily movement practice, and applied tools to minimize the impact of the negative thought loops. Now I'm able to show up more fully in life for myself, my family and in my business.
I designed this workshop to share as many of the helpful things I've learned over the years to help others live better. By applying specific tools and mindfulness techniques we can alleviate anxiety, reduce depression and chronic stress on a daily basis!
Join me and explore simple, yet empowering, practices that can increase mental clarity, improve mood and boost self-awareness. You don't have to take my word for it, give it a try and see for yourself what might be possible for you.
